If you want to go to the Bodrum Peninsula but want to escape the crowds, this is the perfect place.Bodrum is abt 15 min away by car (there are also dolmus), but the bay is still fairly quite. There are a couple of hotels (Kempinski, Club Med) in the bay, but it is all a tame affair.
The hotel is very nice w spacious rooms. The interior is probably slightly Turkish design with more wood, but very tasteful. There is a wonderful big pool and breakfast on the terrace was very nice. The beach is across the street and very family style/low-key, no loud music played.There is an area reserved for guests which is essential just cordoned off from the rest of the beach. Water is clean, unlikely other areas around Bodrum.
Overall great location and nice hotel. On the negative side, staff seems pretty inexperience and mgmt seems only to have a fairly loose grip on them. We found the playing of loud music at the pool annoying (Sade is not supposed to be played at full volume!) but they turned it down on request, just to go through the same procedure the next day. Also the beach could have been tided up a bit. In the morning the sun longer were all a mess, dust bins still full,etc. Overall minor things as the place is actually really wonderful. With some restaurants around there is also choice for food. We never tried the hotel resto as the loud music put us off. I would ask for a room not to the pool/resto as it will be louder because of the staff's believe that loud music is the way to go.
